Dentist Yosuke Sakamoto in his book “Kisu no Kagaku (The Science of Kissing)” says that men who get a kiss every morning on their way to work outlive those men who don’t kiss by an average of five years. This data — added to the results of another survey that showed men who felt loved by their wives were less likely to develop angina than men who don’t feel the same way — means there’s plenty to be said for the value of kissing.
William Cane, a longtime expert on kissing, gave five steps on how to become a better kisser in his book, “The Art of Kissing.” Here’s a paraphrase of Cane’s advice:
Step 1 — Get gentler: Relax the lips and facial muscles.
Step 2 — (Especially for men) Brush your teeth: If you’re worried about bad breath it’s not the time to be kissing.
Step 3 — Understand the difference between kissing and being kissed.
Step 4 — Lend an ear to your partner’s kiss. Breathe deeply, relax and try and imagine how your partner feels.
Step 5 — Kiss like you’re a member of a gang. Kisses given with imagination can be fun. Sometimes be a master and slave, other times be Antony and Cleopatra.
Start making kissing a part of your daily lifestyle with all sorts of kisses, from the soft and gentle to the rough and passionate?
